Skip Nav Bill’s Quality Electric, LLC shares electrical information about outlets and the different types of outlets available for installation in your home. There are several types of outlets, each one with a specific use, and varying levels of protection. Included are Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter outlets (GFCIs), Arc Fault Circuit Interrupters (AFCIs) as well as Tamper Resistant Receptacles (TRRs), plus others. You will see images of each with their name and exactly what they do and where they go. The more you know, the more you can protect your home and yourself from fires, shocks and accidents in connection with outlet usage. Stay Electrically Safe and Smart as a homeowner!
